tark's history

Tark's Grill opened at Green Spring Station in 2008 and was purchased by current operators, Gino Cardinale & Bruce Bodie, in October 2016. Gino & Bruce were also the owners of City Cafe, a favorite restaurant located in Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood, which they opened together in 1994.

Tark's is located in the same spot as the iconic, Harvey's at Green Spring Station, which enjoyed a successful two-decade run before closing in 2000.

Today's Tark's Grill & Bar, lead by Chef & Partner James Jennings and a professional management team, offers a stylish, yet approachable, neighborhood dining experience.

Our seasonally changing menu and always warm hospitality makes Tark's Grill & Bar perfect for almost any occasion.

We're committed to being Green Spring Valley's best all-around local restaurant. Whether it's your first time or one of many visits, we welcome you to be our guest and look forward to seeing you often.
